Open Door Clinic of Elgin
In 1988, ODC became the first Illinois testing site to offer one-week results and can now provide results within a few days. The Clinic also offers the antigen test, which reduces the window period. In January 1993, we initiated a pilot project of a broad spectrum "early intervention" HIV Clinic. Among the services provided are laboratory testing (CD4, viral loads, etc.); primary physician service and specialist referrals; nutrition Counseling and supplements; substance abuse and mental health referrals; alterative care (massage on site) and information, forms and applications for federal, state and local assistance programs along with friendship.
